In retrospect, I can see how it might be interpreted as SPAM, broadly speaking. But I'm not convinced that it meets the definition of SPAM that Google has put into the Blogspot terms of service. But, so far as I can tell, there is no good way to appeal the decision.
Moreover, it appears that while my account was disabled, all of my Google+ contents and profile magically disappeared. I'm not aware if any of my other blogs at Google also disappeared into the great bit bucket in the sky but I wouldn't be surprised if they did. And, if they did, ouch.
I still think my idea for a blog is worthwhile. That is to say, I think it is at least moderately humorous. I mean, c'mon ...
Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson deliver epic acting performances in the dystopian Hunger Games as reality TV star Katniss Everdeen and her mentor Haymitch Abernathy who plot to win a nationally televised battle to the death between 24 angsty teenagers by only killing people in self defense and feigning to be in love with a boy Katniss has ignored her entire life.
But if it triggers Google's SPAM detection, that means that even if I turn to other service providers (such as Tumbler or Twitter), my blog still won't get any hits on Google.
That kind of sucks.
